          This is a non-security Patch and not recommended unless you choose to be a seeker.

            More info please:

            KB4497398 Service Stack – will Windows 10 Updater automatically installed this with the May CU, or does this need to be downloaded from the catalog and separately installed first, similar to Windows 7?

            KB4499183 Update Patch (5/21) with the Download and install change – if not sought out, will it be included in the June C/Update?

            KB4495616 New standalone .NET 4.8 updates – As I understand the .NET 4.8s are now separate from the Windows 10 Monthly C/Updates. How will they be presented to users? Will they appear along with, but separately, with monthly Quality Updates? Or do they need to be manually found in the catalog and installed?

              In Win10 the SSUs are downloaded with the CUs automatically.

              The Patch Tuesday CUs contain the Preview patches which are released after the Patch Tuesday CUs from the previous month. It has been this way and nothing has changed since last month and the month before that and the month before that.

              The .Net CUs will be released as necessary for your PC through Windows Update automatically.

                Unhid, downloaded and installed the May CU KB4499167 but still no .NET 4.8 KB4495616.

                So I ran into a website that says this is an “Update” only needed if have .NET 4.8. installed. So I checked via my registry and it appears I may be up to only .NET 4.7.2

                Question now is how do you obtain .NET 4.8? If automatically, why has it not come down the Windows Updater? Is it optional and my deferral settings are preventing download?

                Do I need it?   Manual install from the MS Catalog?

          I believe the DEFCON-3 was for XP and Win7. Today’s ComputerWorld article talks about Win10 1809 patches, but I didn’t find the “go ahead and patch” statement.

            Yep. I think XP, Vista and Win7 customers (and their related Servers) should patch now, but there’s still no pressing reason to update anything else.

            Give it a few more days.

        Reposting for Window 7 users. SueW also has an excellent install post at #1664924.

        Windows 7 SP1 64bit, with Broadcom network card. Group B.

        Installed May’s updates; IE KB4498206, SO KB4499175 and .NET KB4495612 (SO 3.5.1) today.

        From the catalog; Installed IE KB4498206 1st, SO KB4499175 2nd, SO .NET KB4495612 3rd, and MSRT (from WU) last.

        Did NOT install the IE KB4505050 since they are going to fix it next month anyway.

        Installed one at a time. Rebooted in between each update letting it sit 1 or 2 minutes after update was installed (one took 5 minutes to have the hard drive settle down).

        No network issues. No oddities – other than slow 1st boot after SO update and 15 minutes @ 100% CPU after the .NET install.

        Rebooted 3 times and let it sit for several minutes. (15 min after .NET for Disk activity and CPU to settle.)

        I would recommend people on the last reboot to go to the desktop and let it sit 45 to 60 minutes to Process Idle Tasks, let the trusted installer (as per PKCano) do its thing and let the NGEN recompile the .NET image.

        If you or others here are interested, one can run the MSCORSVW .net image compiler (NGEN) manually. (I do).
        http://blogs.msdn.com/b/dotnet/archive/2013/08/06/wondering-why-mscorsvw-exe-has-high-cpu-usage-you-can-speed-it-up.aspx

        You can force the Idle Tasks if you want by the administrative command prompt: rundll32 advapi32.dll,ProcessIdleTasks

        You can enter that then walk away for 15 to 20 minutes. If the drive light is still on, it is still running, walk away again. Do not allow the computer to go to sleep. Reset the Power Options to 1 hour sleep if needed. Laptops make sure you are on AC power not battery!

        Thanks to all here.

          If it’s not security related like KB4505050( Gov Dot blighty de-borking patch to patch the patch what borked it for all ye gov’s UK governmental affairs To-Dos ) then yes by all means just wait for the next month’s cumulative IE update and that’s less work all around, unless you are needing to contact the Ministry Of Silly Walks and other such bodies.

          Come to think of it, penguins have rather delightful walks as well and less need to be rebooted after updates!

          Wait to install 1903 until it is offered to your PC through Windows Update.

          Microsoft is throttling the rollout based on the compatibility determined by their AI. It is being installed on those computers with the least likelihood of problems first. If you use your computer for your daily driver, you don’t need to be a Guinea pig.

            “go ahead and patch”

              Susan’s Master Patch List is based on a different business-oriented environment than Woody’s DEFCON consumer environment.

              Susan’s list is based on a business environment where there are test machines available and IT departments are staffed to take care of problems. Often businesses have time constraints to get the patches applied to comply with their standards.

              Consumers usually have few computers and they are necessary for daily functions. And they often do not have the technical knowledge to cope with major problems. So Woody’s DEFCON approach is more wait-and-see to give  them less exposure to BSODs, loss of networking, etc.

              They are two different approaches to patching.

              Susan most certainly, emphatically, did NOT give the go-ahead on Win10 1903.

              We’re months away from moving our machines to the new version. Lots of cannon fodder yet to be dissected.

                Testing go ahead for 1903, not prime time go ahead for 1903.  I get 1903 because I am testing it for the office and kicking the tires (and writing about it)  But it’s too soon for widespread go-ahead.  Trend Micro doesn’t support it yet as one example of a vendor that isn’t ready.

                I like it.  I’m encouraged by it.  Microsoft better not mess it up with oopsies.

        So, I changed deferral days of quality updates on my 1809 to 14 (from 21) and got notification about new updates.
        KB4499405 – .net 3.5, 4.7.2, 4.8
        KB890830 – WMSR
        KB4497932 – Adobe Flash Player

        No KB4494441 security/quality update or any other update yet I LOST the deferral options in ‘Choose When Update are Installed’.

        GPEdit update setting has change as well. No option 2 – Notify for download and notify for install
        only deferral by days.

        Version is 17763.437.

        Edit: So I change deferral days for quality updates in GPedit to 21 and got BACK SAC in Windows Update advanced options. Deferral days are set by GPEdit and can’t be changed.

        My HUGE question: I did Microsoft mess my system settings with no OS update !!

        Edit2 : Microsoft has removed Wuau.adm from Administrative Templates – Windows\Inf folder.

          Semi Annual channel is now irrelevant in 1903.  There is no longer a SAC or SAC-T.  So if you only see feature updates can be deferred for up to 365 – that’s the correct options/GUI you are supposed to have.

              Hello Alex, since you are saying that updates are NOT forthcoming, you might want to investigate running Microsoft’s Disk Cleanup and a Microsoft Windows Update tool.

              In Microsoft’s “Disk Cleanup”, press the “Clean up System Files” button, and see about removing the “old MS updates and Previous Windows version OS”, reboot afterwards. Then run the Windows Update Troubleshooter.
              https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4027322/windows-update-troubleshooter

              Also see the below video. The man goes into using Disk Cleanup and clearing system update files, then uses a MS Windows Update Repair tool and mentions power management settings to allow large updates to succeed. He has success with these tools on his PC which was Windows 10 failing to go to build 1709.

                Hello Alex, since you are saying that updates are NOT forthcoming

                Thanks, but I didn’t say that (#1761010).
                My big problem is that Microsoft messed my Pro Windows Update settings, both in GPEdit and in Windows Update advanced options (please read my post) although there were no system updates apart from .net, Flash player, Windows Malicious Removal Tool. None should have affected Windows Update settings.
                The security update missing for May 14 are Servicing Stack KB4499728 and KB4494441.

        In Win10 the SSUs are downloaded with the CUs automatically.

        The Patch Tuesday CUs contain the Preview patches which are released after the Patch Tuesday CUs from the previous month. It has been this way and nothing has changed since last month and the month before that and the month before that.

        The .Net CUs will be released as necessary for your PC through Windows Update automatically.

        In Win10, nothing has to be “manually found” unless YOU choose to be a seeker.

        I dont agree with that. EVERYTHING has to be “found” if you are smart and decline to do it Woody’s way. I have great respect for Woody and this site but I don’t allow anything on 1803 to be installed via Windows Updates in Settings (except Windows Defender updates that I obtain manually each morning). I have Windows Updates disabled using Group Policy and I obtain all updates (including the servicing stack when there is a new one) and Flash Player for IE 11 via the Microsoft catalog. As for the .NETs I don’t generally update them as I would have to do that via the catalog as even if I wanted to use Windows Updates Microsoft has frozen the Windows Updates Settings page just as it did in 1709. That’s how they try to punish you for having some control over your own computer. I wouldn’t wish Windows 10 on my worst enemy.

          Those are your choices. You chose to do it that way.

          But the fact is, that fact is that nothing has to be manually found. It is YOU that have altered that fact, not Windows 10 or Windows Update.

        Was trying to follow your advice and do an incremental update to Win10 1809 rather than leap- frogging from 1803 to 1903.  Seemed like it was working, got most of the monthly updates, but stalled on what I think was the 1809 feature update at 100% complete. Shut down, updates uninstalled and then went to safe mode, restarted and decided to turn my update settings off again. I’m afraid if I leave it on, it’ll go to 1903, which is what I was trying to avoid. 1803 is fine but I’d still like to try and go to 1809 before 1903. Can I do that on Windows Update page. Can I trust them to install 1809 at this late stage?

        Hello Alex, sorry your statement, “I haven’t got any security updates issued on Second Tuesday. The only ‘security’ I see in the catalog (I an non UK) on May 14, is servicing stack (KB4499728).” made me think you were not getting any main updates.

        You also said, “The security update missing for May 14 are Servicing Stack KB4499728 and KB4494441.”

        The security update “Servicing Stack KB4499728” will not be shown in update history, you need to look in the Uninstall-an-Update section to see if it is there.

        As I understand it the SSU has to be installed when no other updates are available.

        Also the KB4494441 requires the KB4499728 to be installed first.

        Even though you have updates off, “an update to the Windows Update program” can still be installed, behind your back.

        That could change setting in WU but you seem to be saying it, KB4499728, is not there.

          In Win10, if you install through Windows Update, the Servicing Stack is bundled with the CU (doesn’t show separately in the list of pending updates) and WU manages the correct sequence of installation.

            Thank you PKC! I appear to be quoting Windows 7 procedure for the SSU.

        You also said, “The security update missing for May 14 are Servicing Stack KB4499728 and KB4494441.”

        I downloaded and installed KB4499728 manually. Ran Belarc Advisor (Windows Update Mini Tool, Show Or Hide Updates, didn’t show either of the updates due to the deferral settings) and got KB4494441 as missing.
        Installed KB4494441 manually.

        “Even though you have updates off, “an update to the Windows Update program” can still be installed, behind your back.”

        That is unacceptable.

        Will installing the deleted Administrative Templates (.admx) for Windows 10 October 2018 Update (1809) give me back control on Windows Update settings in GPEdit ?

          You sure you can’t go into group policy now and set deferrals?  Even without this so called missing template?  As local group policy in Pro should be standard for all.  As I recall if you’ve set them in the GUI or used gpedit you get them in the gui.  If you’ve not gone uber advanced you don’t see the options.  (I think but I need to revisit this)

        All that said, mainly ver 1903 and 1809:

        Where do we stand regarding ver 1803?

        KB4499167  CU (5/14)

        KB4497398 Service Stack (automatically installed with the CU?)

        KB4499183 Update Patch (5/21) with the Download and install change

        KB4495616 New standalone .NET 4.8

        June 11, 2019

        Microsoft pushes “Download and install now” updates to Windows 10 1803 and Windows 10 1809 as part of Patch Tuesday. These updates – as optional updates available for manual download on May 21, they were marked KB4499183 (1803) and KB4497934 (1809) – will be automatically downloaded and installed by the two previous feature upgrades to add the new option letting users decide when to migrate to the next version.

        (Note: Microsoft may not shove the “Download and install now” updates to all users immediately but could stage them over a period of days or even weeks.)

        I don’t want to set deferrals in GPEdit. I suddenly lost and want back option ‘2 – Notify for download and notify for install’ for Windows Updates in GPEdit, and I want back setting deferral in Windows Update – Advanced Options instead of in GPEdit. I even lost SAC setting but wrenched it back from Microsoft’s claws (see screen shots in post #1761010).

        I an hesitant to install (restore?) Administrative Templates (.admx) as I don’t know what it adds/changes exactly.

        For Windows 7, doesn’t BlueKeep affect only those using Professional, Enterprise, or Ultimate? If am not mistaken, Home Premium, Home Basic, and Starter can only initiate an RDC but cannot be connected to.

        A miracle. Got my settings back both in FGEdit and in Advanced Options.

        Add me to the list of those for whom setting my WiFi to a metered connection does not stop updates. (I have Windows 10 Home.) And add my grrr to that overall topic. Just looking away from my laptop long enough somehow allows the update to go forward without the ability to delay it. Aside from not wanting to install an update yet because of known bugs, the update has started at, to say the least, inopportune times such as while giving a lecture  – closing the PPT and not being able to restart the laptop for 15 or 20 minutes.

        I don’t have regular times that I can schedule when I want MS to take over my machine, even overnight. I often have (non-MS) apps open that don’t automatically restart where I left off. So even if I don’t lose data, I may forget what I was working on. And that’s further annoying on top of the reboots at those bad times.

          Adding a further complaint to my own complaint, Windows today updated in spite of having metering on AND having the laptop lid closed.

          Are you sure you have the metered set to stop updates? You can set it to allow regardless.
          Click on “set a data limit…” under metered connection.

        Adding a further complaint to my own complaint, Windows today updated in spite of having metering on AND having the laptop lid closed.

        I have had the same unpleasant experience. Nothing could stop these updates. So finally I trained myself in imaging the laptop in order to set it back as it was before, at a convenient time. And at the same time I learned Linux a bit, to use it on a older laptop, so using internet (banking, hotelreservations, checking routes etc.) is garanteed. For using some programs Windows is still needed, but as soon as this is over, the Windows will be ditched; Microsoft can not be trusted anymore, and is still doing as they like. SnifSnif …

        What happened to the May 2019 patch information?

        You jumped from April 2019 (the old way) to June 2019 (the new way).

        PS: I’m not sure the new way is actually an improvement.

          https://www.askwoody.com/patch-list-master/  I listed the May updates in the PDF.  For Office I didn’t list them individually, I just indicate that I’ve installed them.  I’m trying to give a better indication of what I patch to and why.

          The May patches are listed below the June patches in the PDFs.
          Look for the release date 5/14.

          UPDATE: Now added as a separate link.
